Jayme began her yoga journey 22 years ago to relieve lower back pain and fell completely in love with the practice. Yoga became a place to strengthen herself both physically and emotionally. She began with videos at home then moved on to various studios in Columbus and now makes it a point to practice in a new studio in every place she visits. She enjoys exploring all the nuances of the practice both physically and spiritually. Jayme decided to take yoga teacher training to deepen her personal practice and, in doing so, she discovered a heartfelt passion and a love for sharing yoga and its many benefits with others. Jayme completed her yoga teacher training at Danja Studio with the Columbus School of Yoga. With each class you take with Jayme, you’ll feel her fun and playful enthusiasm for yoga along with her sweet, grounding, and supportive presence.
Yoga teacher training itself inspired me to become a yoga teacher. I originally signed up for YTT to enhance my personal practice, but training made me realize what a privilege it would be to be able to share what I’ve learned and continue to grow with an awesome yoga community!
I have my 200 hour RYT Certificate.
Danja Studio is a wonderful community full of diversity, inclusion, and sacred space. After taking teacher training here I feel I have truly found a wonderful yoga family. All of the teachers have a unique style that is nurtured by the studio, Danja emphasizes individuality and authenticity. Daniel, Jake, and Edwin are so welcoming, and one of these days Enzo will warm up to me I just know it!
One piece of advice I would give my students is to not overthink, to have fun and be authentic while taking their individual path to yoga, to just be open to what comes with no judgment, and enjoy every moment of the journey!
I dearly love triangle pose (Trikonasana). When I began doing yoga I always noticed a real difference in my ability to move freely without pain after a triangle pose. One of my teachers used to say that triangle pose is like a full-body yawn, that there is the practice before triangle and the practice after. I feel that is true in my body.
In teacher training we were given a list of books to read, before that I had read a few things but nothing resonated really, likely because I hadn’t delved deeply into the practice yet. The book from YTT that I really fell in love with is Nourishing the Teacher by Danny Arguetty. The short inquiries and suggested practices are full of insight and inspiration, this book has helped me cultivate a personal sadhana practice that has been transformative.
Something most people don’t know about me is that I’m pretty sure I was an artist in another life!
Outside of yoga, I am passionate about my family, and I am looking forward to doing a LOT of traveling in the years to come!
